We had a garden view room and it was beautiful. The hotel is right on the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a very open lobby, which was nice. The room was very open and well kept. We had requested a king bed and they were able to accommodate this. We really appreciated it. This was... More

Spent three days here after spending seven at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base Cottages. This was our second stay at the Hale Koa in the last 10 years. Overall the Hale Koa is a nice place for members of the Armed Forces to stay, but average at best. PX is pretty much the same, souvenirs are cheap and most are... More

Our room was really beautiful. We were on the top floor and the balcony view was over both the garden and beach! That really made the trip amazing! The beaches are well maintained. The restaurants are decent. The location is only hindered by traffic. Plan lots of extra time to get to the airport!

First off, the hotel is in a location that is within walking distance of a lot of things. That being said the fun stops there. The checkin went smooth enough up until we had to go back down and get the card for the parking garage re-keyed. Parking is a joke. You would think they would be able to find... More

When arriving for our 10yr anniversary, I expected our reserved suite to be tad nicer, however it simply a corner room. For the cost difference that was a bit disappointing. The walls are also paper thin. Our neighbors had the tv on late into the night and we could hear exactly what show. The hotel is nice and welcoming, the... More

Very nice place to stay,clean,friendly staff..if you're military then STAY here. I go there about 3 times a year. It's right there at the Waikiki beach. I used to lived in Kapiolani Blvd but I still come down and spend a night here and there.

I stayed at the Hale Koa in Honolulu from July 8-14. This is a military hotel and you must be acquainted with the military in order to stay here. I must say this was a GREAT stay!. The rooms are nice and clean. They are a good size and the bathrooms are clean as well. All rooms have a balcony,... More

If you are military-Stay Here! This hotel is reserved exclusively for military personnel and their families. What a fantastic price break right in the middle of paradise for those who have served their country! Built on the grounds of Fort DeRussy, guests enjoy access to all Waikiki has to offer at a fraction of the price you would pay for... More

We went with a high floor ocean front room for both of our stays in January. The view from the balcony was breath taking. The layout of the hotel is outstanding, and the traffic on the beach is much more manageable than right next door. We liked this place better than the high end resort we stayed at Maui, and... More

If military or related in some way this is a must stay hotel if traveling to Oahu. Price is right, staff is helpful and friendly, and lots of activities. Perfect location on Waikiki Beach with both an adult pool and another pool for families.
